Lot 217 - Celine Ali - To Forget The Pain
Oil and Crayons on Paper
A6 (15x10cm) Original Artwork
Signed on Verso
Celine Ali is a London-based artist whose practice explores and alludes to the concept of the multiplicity of identity, human connectivity, emotional intimacy, questioning unconventional ideas of identity and social ideals through abstract and vibrant visual compositions.
She spent her childhood navigating between the two cultures of Romania and her ethnic country, Turkey. She graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Interior Design from Northumbria University Newcastle (2019) and recently, she completed her Masters’ degree in Fine Art at London Metropolitan (2021).
Her practice is a mixture of figurative and abstract with a surrealist aesthetic.
Hence, Celine is interested in creating dream-like imagery with rich and vibrant colours, full of mystery which are like an invitation to explore her own thoughts.
